User Reviews for Balletto Vineyards Pinot Noir Russian River Valley

Winemaker's Notes:

"This ruby-colored Pinot Noir has an intense aromatic profile thatbegins with equal parts bright fruit (dark cherry, tart rhubarb, floral violets) and savory elements of cola, cardamom and coffee. Then, theres a touch of dark toast and forest-floor earthliness that round out the aromas and give it extra depth. The smells are complex and ever-changing in the glass over time. In the mouth, the fruit aromas reappear and are surrounded by a perfect viscosity that has plenty of weight without going over the top. A crisp acidity keeps the wine lively and intertwines nicely with the structure. Its full across the palate with fine, coco-like tannins and a nice dose of astringency that lends additional grip and structure to this wine. Overall, the wine has struck the fine balance between delicate and structured, and will improve with bottle aging during the next five to seven years (or more.)" Winemaker's notes
